COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chicory Stout is a rich, dark beer made with a touch of roasted chicory, organic Mexican coffee, St. John's Wort, and licorice root. It is brewed with roast barley, crystal malt and oats and hopped just right with Glacier hops. We use fair trade Organic Mexican Coatepec beans roasted to our specifications by Notting Hill Coffee Roastery in Lewes, DE.

I was impressed by the taste and complexity of this one. Has a lot of chocolate/cofee taste that mixes well. Will buy again.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2003 I was rating this last night, but the rainstorm knocked the lights out. So I handwrote it. Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a jet black liquid with no head unless agitated. Light can not penetrate this beer. Head is caramel-copper colored that disapates quickly, with little remaining. Aroma is a stong, sweet cherry with molasses and slight malt with slight rubbing alcohol. This dark beer calls out to me - DRINK ME!! Flavor is of slight cherry followed by a deep, dark, rich, roasted coffee aftertaste. I don't like coffee, and I don't know the details of coffee - but this I like!! Very easy to drink and no hint of alcohol taste. Overall, a great beer for after dinner. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

Color was very dark brown and had a solid froth of light tan hues. Smell was nice, little smokey, some hop presence, cocoa, and grainy wild rice maybe. Taste was a little watery and not solid enough for a stout for me. It has some smokey grain, coffee thing going on, nice hints, but not enough for an eyebrow raise. Felt a bit creamy and finished a tad lighter then I was expecting. Some bitterness from the hops and a hint of smoked grain or cocoa lingers. Its just below a good stout in my book. Could be bolder and thicker. Actually wouldn't serve bad for a summer stout.

Nice black color, with a little nice swirling white head. Smell has notes of coffee in it mostly. Palate just seems to tamed. The dry part of the beer is present, but still has a thin mouthfeel to it.

A typical micro dry stout. Very dark, with a nice coffee flavor. Goes down pretty smooth. All in all, a pretty good stout.

Dark, dark, malty amber with an alcohol nose - like whisky? Unusual. Let me just say that my initial reaction was "ooh, aah, huh?, ick!" The chicory takes a bit of getting used to, but after a couple of sips, it's really quite good.

Deep brown. Nose of amaretto, raisins, rum, with a hearty wheat character. Lots of carbonation. Full feel in the mouth, but has an abrasive old leather flavor mixed in with the coffee and malt. Palate is wet, slightly syrupy. But feeling old, damp, and empty at the same time.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2006 POur is a black with a mild tan to light brown head. Lacing is very nice. Aroma is that of coffee. The start is a hit of coffee taste, which lasts and lingers throughout. Not very complicated, but a good taste. The palate is a moderate to heavy. I would recommend this beer to those who are big coffee drinkers. Although, this beer tastes good, I feel it definitely lacks some sophistication and it is too straightforward. A decent brew, though.

Dark body and head. Smooth flavor. Interesting tastes of coffee, hops and roasted chocolate bordering on the tasteful side of peculiar. This stout really had my brain and taste buds going.

Who needs a latte, drink this. Jet black color, big dirty white head. Very coffee-like. Sweetness in flavor. The coffee and bitterness is a little overwhelming. Might be a good dessert beer. Blend with vanilla ice cream? I'm getting a headache just drinking it.
